    An easier way to downgrade is to time travel before they released the firmware

    He’s the one who posted the hdmi mod on psvita that was never released right..

    • Modasucka says:

      Yup Bruh. He got banned on one of his accounts because of it too. It’s crazy what Karma does to you.

    • mixedfish says:

      Even if he didn’t release it, HDMI mods exist so that doesn’t matter.

      • LeLel says:

        Yeah but he said that it was an easy to do mod so it won’t require the ‘capture card’ from those japs.

        He’s always doing this kind of s*it, which is perfectly normal according to his avatar ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

    Not released is not losing credibility.
    katsu is a intelligent hacker released a lot epsp exploits, psvita glitches, even game card pinout.
    he does have ablity to investigate nand pinout and hardware downgrade it.

  10. NoSpam says:

    “XmaxKatsu has been losing credibility over the months, announcing several hardware hacks on the PS Vita that he never released.”
    People are just mad ’cause he ain’t sharing; and jealous, definitely jealous.

  11. Karlos lawliet says:

    One thing is hack a console and other share the results. Why not believe people simply because they decide not to share?

    • lmao says:

      Cus no trusted hackers like wololo, yifanlu, etc get their hands on it to verify the truth.
      Sorry, i don’t believe it when suddenly a random guy saying “i got a kernel hack” without some trusted hackers verifying it.

  12. ChevyCam says:

    There’s no point in him releasing a POC video, if there’s nothing to actually release.

    I know how to back into a bank, and transfer money. Heres a video that doesn’t show me actually DOING the hack. Now you HAVE to believe me!

    Are you serious? For all we know, he could have a friend PSTV hooked up too, and on “reboot”, just switch inputs on the TV to the other one, which is pre-set to ask for the 3.30 update, so it looks right.

  13. Cameron says:

    Has this guy EVER done anything for the scene?

  14. T says:

    I found this new glitch in ratchet and clank 3 where the game loads slower

  15. Looter says:

    Its completely possible this is real based on reading Yifan’s older blog posts. Yifan discovered through reading the file system that the current firmware, as well as one previous firmware is stored. Likely this hack corrupts the original firmware and the system then uses the “backup” firmware to decide what firmware the system is on. This is why it’s only asking for one firmware back. If this is true, this is only a “one-step” downgrade. You can only go back one firmware version. Great discovery, but let’s be honest about the usability of this. Highly, Highly Limited.

    • lolzoar says:

      If so, then couldn’t you keep doing it over and over to go back to firmware 1.00? I don’t think it’s that simple. The 3.36 firmware probably has an issue which he exploited. An exploit which is exclusive to that firmware alone. Either way, Katsu isn’t going to release this, just like all the other “stuff” he’s done, so there’s no point in getting excited. Btw, did you know? The japanese mod guy who installs capture devices into your Vita is also called Katsu. Coincidence???

      • anonanon says:

        >If so, then couldn’t you keep doing it over and over to go back to firmware 1.00?

        No. If this hack is how Looter described. only two firmwares are stored on the vita
        1. The current firmware
        2. The previous firmware the vita was on

        Say you corrupt the current firmware, and it reverts to the previous firmware, now there is nothing to revert to if this firmware gets corrupt. The vita doesn’t store an unlimited number of firmwares, and it’s not going to go and download a lower firmware once you downgrade.

  16. ViRGE says:

    What exactly would be the purpose of downgrading from 3.36 to 3.30, anyhow?

  17. andrew says:

    I have the soldering skills to try this. Once I get around to it I will try to at least read the nand.

  18. Reprep says:

    “XmaxKatsu has been losing credibility over the months, announcing several hardware hacks on the PS Vita that he never released.”

    This part was added to the article by Wololo. He probably forgot to state that while publishing.

    Of course this doesn’t change the fact that it is up to you to decide if it is real or not. I am just the messenger.

  19. nyx says:

    This is exactly like the 3DS.
    I guess he just dump the old fw, update then flash it back. If there’s no anti-downgrade feature it should work.
